"The Old Testament in Greek according to the Text of Codex Vaticanus
In contrast to the eclectic text of the GÃ¶ttingen series, this older critical edition, known as the "Larger Cambridge Septuagint," is a diplomatic text, reproducing Codex Vaticanus with a critical apparatus with variant readings from other manuscripts. Edited by Alan E. Brooke, Norman McLean, and Henry St John Thackeray, this series is incomplete, with only Genesis through Esther from the Protestant OT as well as 1 Esdras, Judith, and Tobit from the Apocrypha ever published:" Orginally published in seies from 1906 to 1935 in 8 parts, the 9th part as vol.3.part1 added in 1940 after Brooke's death. I have not found this last part to combine into this set. I also submit the 8 parts individually. mjm, 2010.

some hints to use the Cambridge Edition of LXX
The Cambridge edition is in 8 volumes. The necessary instructions to read the critical apparatus are in the first volume (pdf-file with 12,7M).
There is also a pdf-file with 133M, containing all 8 volumes in one file.
I prefer the smaller files for the 8 volumes.
The quality of the scans is great!
I had difficulties to display the politonic greek text in epub format or full text format. This may be a difficulty of my software / browser.
For the moment I prefer the online reading or the pdf.

This edition is a graet contribution to biblical studies everywhere in the world. Thanks to God!Anyone who is willing to study biblical Greek for few years is able to approach the revelations given in the Hellenic time. You will find they are basically same as seen in the modern versions of OT of your own native languages. This demonstrates that all of the Bible are inspirations of God, and that God speaks to our human beings in huamn languages we can understand in differnt ages.
